Blaque Label Lace Peplum

Blaque Label top, H&M skirt, SPANX tights, DUO boots

I ordered this top off of Revolve Clothing on a whim. I have had a need recently for more evening appropriate clothing, and this top at 50% off fit the bill. It has a ton of weight to it, and the peplum length is absolutely divine. Coupled with a black tank and all black skirt/tight combo, I love this ensemble for a sexy night out.

I bought this skirt from H&M almost 2 years ago for $5 and it has held up surprisingly well. It is one of their basics and is a great addition to any closet. See my full review on this item from years ago HERE.

A Crop Top and High Rise Jeans

I’ve styled this crop top with a high-waisted skirt, but never was daring enough to do it with jeans. There is something about your stomach being out in the open, with no covering over the jeans and that freaks me out. But, I received a request to show how I would style a crop top with jeans, so I thought I would share my way of making the trend comfortable for a pearshape.

What made this outfit particularly comfortable for me was the jean choice. These high-rise BDG jeans are bar-none my favorite jeans in my closet. They have the perfect rise, stretch and make me feel thin and amazing every time I put them on. I opted for my Forever 21 crop top as it has a button down (more flattering on the neckline) and ties that hang down in front.

At the last second, I tied this striped pull-over sweater around my waist for extra coverage. You could totally omit this item if you are more bold, but I found it to give a cool, hipster vibe to the outfit as well.

Espadrille Sunday

Andrew Marc leather jacket (a clear recent favorite), J.Crew pixie pants, J.Crew chambray (on sale!), J.Crew espadrilles (love this color), Necklace from Nordstrom Rack, Prada sunglasses

I scooped up these J.Crew espadrilles during a recent sale and pulled them out for my San Diego trip. They were the perfect ultra casual flat for walking around the beach and dressing up a pair of leggings and layers for dinner.

How much do you love this bow necklace from Nordstrom Rack? I got it recently so it should still be in stores!

What do you think of the espadrille trend?

Anthropologie Midday Dress

Anthropologie Dress (exact same style, different colors HERE), Converse sneakers, Prada sunglasses

This last weekend I spent a few days in San Diego, at home, with my parents. The city as a whole takes on a more laid back vibe. Sneakers instead of wedges, casual waves and little to no makeup are the norm. I brought my new favorite dress with me from Anthropologie, and accessorized it with my most casual, simple pieces. A great pair of tennis shoes, flesh-toned sunglasses and a bit of lipstick were all I wore all day. To say it was a refreshing break from my usual full face of makeup and coldly calculated outfits would be an understatement.

While this dress in the polka dot print is sold out, I LOVE the style and find it so slimming. Other colors are still available on Anthropologie (on sale) and I would highly recommend scooping one up.
